College Sophomore

Greek Life: After looking into various fraternities it did not leave me with a since that I wanted to join. I know the Greeks do participate in community service and try to get everyone involved.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Aside from the PA law that states more than 7 women living together in the same house is deemed a brothel and illegal which prevents sororities from having legitimate chapter houses, Greek life is awesome. I am personally not in a sorority at the moment but I have been strongly considering one. Many of my friends are involved in Greek life and it is becoming something I am very interested in.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is noticeable on campus, but you don't have to be in a fraternity or sorority to be friends with people. Non-Greeks can have their own social lives, but no one bothers each other.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Most students feel greeks are snobby, stuck up and reminiscent of high school...

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There is a large amount of Greek associations on campus. They vary from cultural to professional to academic fraternities and sororities. With such a large population, they do not dominate the campus. You can see the Greeks shine during annual events such as Homecoming and Spring Fling, where these clubs show off their colors and letters. Greeks are also known for their parties, offering those who can’t get into bars and clubs another option for something to do at night. The campus seems to be divided on its feelings toward the Greeks. While some people find Greek life to be an incredible experience, others feel as though members are secretive and cliquish.

It's best for students interested in joining the Greeks to get to know a member of a fraternity or sorority. They aren’t as cliquish or intimidating as some people may think. These organizations also have events such as dating-game shows and bachelor auctions. Many students prefer professional fraternities because they help make connections with alumni and non-alumni in professional fields. They are also a reliable source for resume help and internships. Fraternities are supposed to provide community service, though most students at Temple don’t recognize them doing much.
